by Victor Matara

The 2018 list for Top 40 Under 40 Women in Kenya is finally out. The list which is compiled by Nation Media Group’s English business newspaper – Business Daily Africa,  recognizes women who have been exceptionally good at professions that have been male-dominated such as software engineering, actuarial science, aviation and engineering.

The list which was first published 10 years ago,  receives hundreds of nominations every year which are then subjected to a panel of experienced judges. According to Business Daily editor Ochieng’ Rapuro, the list will continue to be published as a tool for inspiration for the hard-working women in Kenya.
